This beautiful native woodland spring ephemeral flower is growing in abundance in Morris Park. Â It is in peak bloom, with hillsides covered in white flowers with thin pink stripes. Â If you live in the neighborhood or nearby, come on out and visit this natural treasure! If you are out of state, see if you have them in your natural area, on your lawn or in your woodland.
A great garden specimen, this plant is available at native plant nurseries and plant sales in our area.
This lunchtime walk in Morris Park was enchanting, with blooming flowers at every turn.
The violets are also blooming.
Here is a giant Oak tree, the biggest in Morris Park, surrounded by Mayapples.
A most pleasant spring day in the forest.

Mike, imagine what the world would be like if humans were only 6 inches tall. Better? Worse?
I like the perspectives on your photos. A plant’s-eye-view of the world. Good stuff!
Terrific photographs, Sean! The one with the wasp is sharp, colorful and a real bonus for visiting the Sanguine Root! The trees have so few leaves, yet–it’s going to change so dramatically in the next weeks–all that sunlight will get shaded by ten million leaves.
I saw the bee and thought, if i get a shot of this, Mark will make a comment!
